A seminar based on the findings of the Office for Learning and Teaching funded project:

An evidenced-based approach to the design and redevelopment of inclusive technology enhanced learning environments.

Presenters: Professor Denise Wood, Central Queensland University, and Dr Sheila Scutter, University of South Australia                     

Based on the findings of this project, which included case studies of a wide range of courses across Australia, including a course located in a remote community in the north-west corner of South Australia (APY Lands), and courses offered online in Singapore and Hong Kong, this seminar will demonstrate the approaches used to evaluate accessibility and usability, the findings of the case studies, and guidelines for ensuring usability and accessibility for students from a diverse range of backgrounds, in different locations and with different learning needs.

In the workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn how to use the usability and accessibility approaches used in this project, and to review their own courses using their own courses using these techniques and the guidelines developed.
